create new laws, how do they know they would be effective? that's one of the things that in covering congress you see that up close, is while they understand that there is a critical need, it's an issue that matters to people, what can they do to would actually make a difference if they put all this political capital into it. so background checks might be a place to begin. high capacity magazines, there might be a place to start with that. well, manufactures will then adjust to work around whatever a new law would b it's complex, it's difficult and one of the most important things to watch is the impact of the president's sort of campaign style tour, when he visits places around the country, urges people to take action, will we hear the phones going off in this place? will people be emailing and writing to their members of congress demanding some sort of action? that's the sort of thing that members of congress pay attention to. and we don't have a sense yet of where people are in terms of not just the polling, but what would they be willing to do to reach out to their own personal m
to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protecting our children and that's why change is going to happen. all that talk about states' rights couldn't stop progress 50 years ago. and he must make sure it doesn't stop progress today. joining me now is co-host of "t
we will be judged. >> the president lays it all on the line for new gun laws. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> and he calls out the right wing machine that wants to kill reform. >> tonight, congresswoman jackie sleer of california on the president's major announcement. dan gross on the brady campaign and on whether the president's campaign can work. michael steele on the dispickble nra ad attacking the president's kids. >> plus, obama for america is getting the fan back together to fight the nra. >> it is time to get activated, again. >> former obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter joins me tonight. and congresswoman january shakowski on the return of the public option. >> good to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. there cannot be another false start in curbing gun violence in this country. today, the path for change was paved. president obama announced proposals for sweeping reforms to gun laws in this country in the wake of the horror at sandyhook elementary, it's gut check time for america. >> this is our first task as a s
that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records who want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother of course passed a background check. >> here's the bottom line. these laws are not perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person who has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically.
else under the law. >> and the president takes the first step towards challenging congress on climate change. >> we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> before leaving the capitol, president obama pauses to absorb the moment. >> take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> what about women's rights? on today's 40th abc anniversary of roe v. wade our exclusive nbc news-wall street journal polls shows for the first time a majority of americans say abortion should be legal in almost all cases. candid camera. the girls snap pictures. they dance. they laugh it up during the parade. >>> nbc's al roker scores a thumbs up from president obama. and gets a running handshake from vice president biden. >> mr. pres
concealed weapons on campuses, on school campuses, college campuses is actually against the law, is that right? >> reporter: i couldn't tell you about college campuses, but i will tell you there is a high school here in texas where teachers are carrying concealed weapons. that decision was made because of the remoteness of the school. it's not announced what teachers carry, but it is a decision they made because of their circumstances and because of the distance that law enforcement is away from them. i couldn't tell you the specifics about this particular campus. >> janet shamlian reporting for lone star college. we'll be back to you very soon. let's bring in former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, we heard this may have been some kind of dispute between two individuals with some being caught up in the cross fire. what are you learning from your sources? >> well, what i have heard unofficially, martin, and you and i know how confusing the reporting is in these stories initially, was that at least one of the two shooters allegedly had a weapon in a backpack and another had w
has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically. law enforcement is totally for the brady law. and the idea that felons or people who are mentally infirm or people who are spousal abusers should be allowed to buy guns, most everyone agrees on that, even -- >> but there's no overwhelming evidence of the assault weapons ban dramatically reduced this incident of violence, nor was there an uptick in this sort of violence once the law lapsed. >> during the 10 years that the assault weapons ban was in effect, the use of those weapons in crime went down a significant percent an. >> senator, is there any gun regulation, any restriction of gun rights, you could accept or vote for? >> sure. i think the fact that we have background checks with people buy firearms and we prevent felons and those with serious mental illness acquiring them, those make perfect sense. >> so a background check is something you could support? >> well, the background checks are in place when a licensed firearms
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sat down, page and protection act into law and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two things we are going to see, it does not look like we are going to see much more on jobs. the white house is not fighting hard. they have not made infrastructure a condition of moving forward. we got $600 billion in the fiscal cliff. republicans are going to make a decision to include revenues or whether or not they are going to make a decision that is better to do no more reduction over the second term. if it is what it takes to keep the president from getting more tax revenues. >> let me ask this. what i hear you saying is deficit reduction. it seems as though we have a president who is legitimately a deficit hawk. he believes the deficit is a problem and deficit reduction is a priority. when you look at the approval rate of americans on handling of the economy, it's split half and half with support for th
and ultimately very bloody standoff between law enforcement and this very well-armed group of people. it was a 50-day standoff in waco that ended in a massive fire and many, many fatalities. >> good evening. it appears tonight that david koresh, who believed that he was the son of god, perished today in a setting that closely resembled hell. and apparently, he took more than 85 of his followers with him, including it's estimated 17 children. >> what happened at waco was an absolute nightmare. but on parts of the very far right, on the anti-government far right fringe, it was seen not just as a nightmare but as a conspiracy, as a government conspiracy, as something that was ginned up and in fact faked by the government to create a big enough, scary enough situation that it would justify taking away everyone's guns. a freshman republican congressman from texas at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton
equal. and that fight for equality has defined his presidency. he expanded the federal hate crimes law. he became the first president to publically support gay marriage. on women's rights, the first bill he signed into law, was the fair pay act. he's appointed two women to the supreme court. on issue after issue, this president has fought for the average american. approving pel grants for higher education and he fought for speedy compensation for victims of the gulf oil spill and for the victims of this economy. extending long term unemployment benefits, bringing about tax cuts for small businesses and the middle class. he's had the american's people's interest at heart. and we were reminded of that again today. >> if there is a step that we can take that will save even one child from what happened in newtown, we should take that step. >> that was earlier this week. in signing those executive actions on gun control, we were reminded that president obama doesn't shy away from a fight, no matter how difficult it may with. and there's no wonder, after all, this is a man who's accomplished
support for stronger gun laws. a brand new nbc/"wall street journal" poll show asthma jort of americans, that's 56%, think gun control laws should be tightened in this country. in thames of specific gun proposals being considered, there's even wider support requiring background checks on all gun purchases, eliminating the 40% of gun sales that currently get no checks at all has overwhelming support. a "new york times" poll finds 9 in 10 americans support such a law. including 9 in 10 who say there is a gun in their household. a ban on high capacity magazines is backed by more than 6 in 10 and by a majority of gun owning householtz. 53% say they support a ban on semiautomatic weapons and in if youtown, aurora, tucson, or any of the some 90 gun deaths each day weren't enough, there's perhaps a new poster boy for the gun problem in america. his name is richard schmidt, a white supreme sibs with a felony conviction for manslaughter who managed to acquire an arsenal of 18 assault weapons and other firearms along with more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition. nbc news national investigative corr
that leads in to a neighborhood. and right now, harris county constables aided by a number of law enforcement agencies are fanned out throughout that wooded area. looking for potentially another gunman. students have been told to shelter in place. many have already fled the campus but we're to believe many others are just locked down in the rooms they were in when the gun fire started. >> janet, it is our best understanding at this point that the victims in this shooting were caught in the cross fire of this argument that reportedly occurred. >> potentially. and that's what's hard about this is sounds like there were two people. gun tire. some reports of gang related and yet it is on a school campus and that it's possible both people in custody were among the shooters. it's also important to note, s.e. the victims taken to ben taub hospital in houston. which is the trauma center. there are closer hospitals to this campus but ben taub and the texas medical center is where the most serious cases are generally taken. >> can you describe, i understand it's a system of colleges. can you explain th

about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. maybe try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front, failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the usada report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't accepting of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and usada today, they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with this reptilian look on h
this morning. the latest msnbc wall street journal poll found that 56% of americans want stricter gun laws. that's less than the 60% who supported stronger laws in the '90s. the new poll found that 7% say the gun laws are too strict now. 35% want no changes. >>> new jersey governor chris christie says the new nra ad using president obama's daughters to make a point about armed guards at schools is, quote, reprehensible. >>> a new poll from george washington university found that 55% of young people are likely to display their political affiliation on social media. liberals were more likely to post public messages than conservatives, and they're more likely to block people because of their political views. >>> the mother of offering popular advice, known as dear abbey. pauline phillips was 94. >>> and check this out. we searchers have created a new gadget that can snap photographs of snowflakes in 3d. the device uses three high-speed cameras and infrared sensors to capture the amazing photos while the snowflakes are in free fall. very, very cool. >>> weill a rebound in the world's second la
